Climate Change Mitigation Articles

The transport sector contributes more than a quarter of global energy-related CO2 emissions. While many other sectors have begun to level out or reduce their emissions, global transport emissions continue to grow at a rapid pace and an absolute peak is not yet in sight. Especially in China unprecedented economic growth and urbanisation have led to mind-boggling growth rates of individual motorised transport, as well as freight transport. Over the last five years, the growth rate of private vehicle ownership averaged 28% per year [2]. As key actors in the global economy and community of nations, China and Germany cooperate to develop a sustainable low carbon transport sector. GIZ supports Chinese national and local authorities and policy institutes in developing mitigation strategies and policies based on emission quantification and policy analysis.
